Take Time to Stop, Take a Photo, and REALLY See the World

BY KSENIA ZIZINA
@ VOL 11 ON JUN 16, 2016

"In a very fast paced world, I think film is a very good tool to learn how to stop for a moment and acknowledge it."

In Take Time to Stop, Take a Photo, and REALLY See the World from PechaKucha Night London Vol. 11Ksenia Zizina shares how shooting film makes her better at seeing and appreciating the world. Zizina is a designer with a passion for all things creative - architecture, photography, art, design, travel - you name it! She works in architectural practice and uses the rest of her time to make photographs. Photography has become second nature for Zizina. It is an essential part of her 'storytelling' which involves preparing the film stock, shooting, developing negatives, scanning and archiving. She considers all parts as one creative approach to photography.

Ksenia not only shares some of her beautiful images but also conveys her passion for all the small and interesting aspects of the world and how taking photos helps her appreciate these things. By the end, you will want to pull out your camera and take some snaps of your community, your environment, and your world!

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, July 28th, 2016.

From Siberia to Texas: Uncovering My Family’s Immigration Story One Recipe at a Time

BY MARY KALTENBERG
@ VOL 33 ON MAY 22, 2017

Mary Kaltenberg best introduces her story herself:

"It started during a blizzard storm the first week I arrived back in the United States early 2016. As an activity for my mom and I during this cold snowy day, we gathered recipes and started compiling them into a cohesive cookbook. I asked questions about the origination of the recipe and through each recipe lived a different story. Translating and transcribing developed into a documentation of our family history, rich of funny, suspenseful and adventurous stories. One recipe at a time I uncovered the story of my Jewish, Russian, Polish family - how they became a family, survived in Siberia, were deported and stripped of citizenship and the humor of eventually adapting to American culture."

How much is your time worth?

BY CHRISTINE GALLAGHER
@ VOL 16 ON APR 12, 2019

Do you think about how much your time is worth? Is it worth more or less than other people’s time? There is a saying that “time is money,” but it’s not that simple. Let’s think about how “time” is sometimes “different amounts of money” for different groups of people, and whether or not that needs to change.
